Fix That Drip

Imagine looking up at the ceiling of your living room and finding a water stain - or even worse to suddenly feel water dripping on your head. The stain is something of a mystery, leaving most homeowners wondering exactly where the water is coming from. The idea of tearing apart a home to fix a leak can give the average homeowner a sick feeling in the pit of their stomach. Often, leaking shower drains cause these stains. Drain assemblies can start to leak for several different reasons, but poor installation practices and old age are often the culprits. A fiberglass shower stall should be bedded, which means support is required under the base so the shower floor does not flex when someone is standing on it. Putting cement or mortar under the shower when it is installed gives it a solid platform, which prevents flex in the shower floor. Without this, the flex causes movement at the pipe connection, resulting in cracks in the base and leaks at the drain. Also, the gasket that forms part of the water-sealing property for the drain assembly gets brittle with age and will crack, sometimes causing a leak. One thing is for sure, no matter what causes the shower drain to leak, it must be fixed. In the past, homeowners were pretty much limited to a couple of choices. One option was to tear out the ceiling and remove enough of the floor under the shower base to work on the drain assembly. Another alternative was to remove the entire shower stall to access the drain assembly. Both choices are very expensive and destructive to your home in order to repair a drain assembly that costs less than a fast-food dinner for four. However, there is a new product that will solve the problem of a leaking shower drain without requiring you to tear up your house. Plumb-Rite Manufacturing, of Modesto, Calif., has invented the WingTite, a replacement shower drain that can be installed from the topside without removing the entire shower stall. Whether the shower is a complete one-piece shower assembly or a fiberglass base with tile on the walls above it, the drain assembly can be replaced quickly, easily and with no demolition required. The WingTite replacement shower drain is installed entirely from the topside. It uses an O-ring to seal the existing 2-inch PVC or ABS drainpipe to the new shower drain body, while four wings swing out to tighten the new drain assembly to the shower stall, creating a tight seal. No muss, no fuss. The product comes with a complete set of instructions to make it easy for almost anyone to remove the old shower drain and install the WingTite. Included with the installation instructions is a list of common household tools needed for the job. The WingTite is designed to fit 2-inch PVC or ABS drainage pipe, and adapters are available to fit 1-1/2-inch and 2-inch copper pipe. If WingTite is not yet available at your local home center, see a professional plumber who can order it for you. For more information, visit www.plumbrite.com . Arthur W. Thompson
